Is there anything Guy can say or do which is met with reproach? He clearly has the Midas touch!

Goodlettsville TN 2009
Don Reed was performing in a physical room, in which there were 6 or 7 patients. One was an elderly woman about 90-95years of age. She was sitting in a wheelchair with no expression on her face. She hadn’t been responding to the therapy given by the therapist. Don was performing a song from the decade of the 20’s with a twist beat. The song was, “When Your Old Wedding Ring Was New”.
Don recalls when he came to the line, “what a beautiful picture you made as my bride” he playfully took his guitar and pointed it at her taking a step toward her. She responded by looking up and smiling at him, then struggled to get up out of her wheelchair. At that moment, the staff ran to her side, fearful that she may fall, and assisted her. Once she got her footing, she did a little dance (much like the twist), walked up to his side, and kissed him on the cheek. Blushingly she covered her face and remarked “oh my God what did I do!? Then she turned around and with assistance from the staff, happily twisted all the way back to her wheelchair.
